Neon is designed with a synchronous model in mind. It would need to
change rather dramatically. Possible to do, of course. It's just a
simple matter of programming :-)

That said, there were a number of other things that we wanted to
explore in designing an HTTP client library when we started serf:
filtering, minimal-copy, multiplexing connections, etc. Serf has a
very different API model (which is not very friendly right now, which
is one of the problems that needs to be fixed).
